Non-U.S. members What breeds do you have?

What breeds do you members that are not in the US own and what do you do with them? Include pics if you have them. What type of tack do you use also?

This is my horse Phoebe. She is an Irish Sport Horse which is basically a fancy way of saying down the lines she has a bit of everything in her lol.

I mainly do showjumping but now that she is back in work we are thinking of getting into dressage.

Icies, they're the only breed in the country. We do, well, Icelandic style I guess. It's kind of like saddleseat but most people also do a little dressage. We again ride in Icelandic saddles which look like dressage ones, and the most common bridle is a simple one, crownpiece, cheekpieces and a browband. Nosebands are almost always used, the drop ones were used a lot but now I'm seeing more of other types.

Australian Stock Horse. (ASH)

I do ASH shows, Mounted Games, Campdrafting, Polocrosse, a bit of Jumping, Trails riding, Stockwork... Basically everything.

Tack? I was using just a wintec 500, but have finally got my new stock saddle. I don't have many pictures of me riding in it yet, except for polocrosse ones, and you can't really see it. I use a barcoo bridle with cotton reins, normally cotton split reins with leather buckles, sometimes cotton one peice reins for MG.

My saddle:

At an ASH show (A borrowed saddle):

And a bunch of good action pictures of us doing MG here:

The best ones from that thread:

A Shire-TB cross, but the horse is from the States. Does that count?

I ride a French bred Appy mix with a Gaston Mercier long distance saddle. My hubby rides a Quarter mare imported from the US and uses a Tucker saddle.

The main breeds where I am are Canadien horses, canadian-bred quarter horses, standardbreds and appys. There are loads of others but as far as general riding goes thats what most of them are.
The Canadiens were standing on a huge chunk of ice dumped from the water bin I thought it was funny and when I took a picture my camera glitched The paint in the backround is a canadian barrel-bred quarter horse and the grey is my Percheron-Arab cross.

As far as tack goes, the stable where I board has everything english, western, Austrailian stock, a couple of old western parade saddles, dressage, bareback pads...someone even has a mexican saddle!

I own 2 Welsh Section D's and a Traditional Coloured Cob (known in the USA as a Gypsy Cob/Vanner).

I don't ride either of them yet as they are all under the age of 3.
